Hi, I’m Nara Altmann. I’m a chemical engineer with a background in engineering project management and operations. Through my work experience I came to realize that the solution to a problem was very often not limited by technical or scientific understanding but by deficiencies in exchange of information and collaboration. So I’ve recently finished a masters in Information and Knowledge Strategy from University of Columbia.
I want to work helping organizations harness the power of diversity (of all sorts, gender, race, cultural, professional, education, social) in the solution of their problems. Online communities form an integral part of that and I look forward to learning from all of you here!
On the personal side, I am Brazilian but have a piece of my heart in Denver where I live now, and in Australia and Chile where I’ve lived for many years in the past. I have two young kids, a dog and two cats. I enjoy skiing and hiking.
